Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently certified by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, with an Instructional I certificate in the field of Elementary Education K-6. This was issued in 2004. I have been a substitute teacher in 3 local school districts for the last 7 years, teaching all Elementary grades. Previous to teaching here, I taught in Australia for the Victorian Department of Education. I was a Grade 4 classroom teacher in a rural school in Victoria.

English

I have a very strong base in teaching English. I currently work as a Reading teacher, and pair many lessons with English content (literary devices, grammar, punctuation, sentences, spelling, etc). As an Elementary School Teacher, I have gained immeasurable experience by teaching full-time and as a substitute teacher in Australia, Kenya, England, China and the United States for the past 15 years. I have taught all grade levels from Kindergarten to 6th Grade, plus College Level students in Kenya and China. I majored in Language Literacy when completing my Bachelor of Education. I recently completed the English as a Second Language Program Specialist course. Personally, I love to read and write, and am thrilled to have a children's book being published this Fall.

ESL/ESOL

I completed the ESL Program Specialist program through Intermediate Unit 1 in 2011, and had it added to my PA Instructional I certificate. I look forward to working with you or your student in learning English.

Reading

I am currently working as a Reading teacher with high school students. This is a unique setting, in that Reading is separated from English, as a subject. In my classroom we not only read texts, but discuss everything we can about them, from the author's purpose, tone, mood, setting, themes, etc, to literary elements of characterization, point of view, perspective, imagery, simile/metaphor, symbolism, connotation vs. denotation, conflict, etc.
